CAKE Is the platform’s own management token that can be used in different ways: staking, buying lottery tickets, voting, and farming tokens. The editorial staff of Bitcoinminershashrate.com offers an overview of the decentralized exchange with all its capabilities and prospects, as well as the direct use cases of CAKE.

The decentralized exchange allows exchanging BEP-20 tokens among themselves using automated liquidity pools. Liquidity is provided to the exchange by “liquidity providers” (LP), who place their assets in pools. In return, they receive FLIP tokens, which confirm the right to distribute the delivery reward. For example, if a member contributes CAKE and Binance Coin to the liquidity pool, they receive Cake-BNB FLIP tokens.
Each user, making a swap on the exchange, pays a trading commission of 0.2%, which is broken down as follows: 0.03% is sent to the project treasury, 0.17% is returned to liquidity providers.
To trade on DEX on PancakeSwap:
Go to section Exchange.
- Unlock Binance Smart Chain Wallet (installed as a browser extension).
- Select a trading pair, enter the amount.
- Click “Swap”. Confirm the exchange.
- Confirm the payment in the wallet pop-up window.
You can then view the details of the transaction in the BSCscan browser.
Farms in PancakeSwap are starter liquidity pools that allow you to earn CAKE tokens. To farm assets, you need to activate the Binance Smart Chain wallet, choose the most suitable farm. Detailed information is provided for each of them. Then you need to go to the trading section on the Liquidity tab and click the Add liquidity button.
Select assets to add, such as BNB and CAKE. You need to provide them in a 50/50 ratio to each other (based on the value of assets in dollars).
When finished, click on the Supply button. Confirm sending the transaction in the wallet. You have now received liquidity tokens. Return to the farms page. Select the required farm from the available options and add your LP tokens to it. That’s it – you will now earn CAKE tokens based on the specific farm’s annual percentage rate.
Syrup Pools allow you to stake CAKE in order to receive other tokens, including new ones. Profitability is recalculated with each new block in the BSC blockchain. The purpose of the pools is to help the development of new projects on the Binance Smart Chain, to accelerate their implementation by distributing a certain number of tokens among CAKE token holders.
All pools can be divided into two categories: Core and Community. The former are hosted directly by the PancakeSwap team according to their own decision. The second ones are put up for voting and are placed only if they got enough votes from users.
All projects from this section also, by default, receive instant listing in PancakeSwap and preferential promotion on the exchange (temporarily becoming the first when users choose tokens for exchange).
Anyone can participate in the lottery (Lottery section) by purchasing a ticket for 10 CAKE. It is allowed to buy several at once, there are no restrictions. Paying for one ticket gives the participant a combination of four random characters.
To win the jackpot (half of the total prize pool), the user must match all 4 numbers on their ticket in the same way as the four winning numbers. But even if 2-3 numbers are collected, the participant is guaranteed to receive a reward. The structure of the winnings is as follows:
- 4 numbers – 50% of the bank.
- 3 numbers – 20% of the bank.
- 2 numbers – 10% of the bank.
Of course, it can happen that several users have the same 2, 3 or 4 numbers at once. In this case, the winnings are divided equally between them. You need to receive the prize manually by clicking the corresponding button on the lottery page.
The remaining 20% from the bank is burned.
If there are no tickets matching 4 numbers, then 60% of the bank is transferred to the next lottery round.
